This week’s VO School Podcast is the first episode in a new series we’re calling, Ask Jim!

Jim Kennelly is a studio owner, producer, and legend of the voiceover industry in New York City. What Jim doesn’t know about voiceover isn’t worth knowing, so we’re presenting all manner of listener questions to him this week.

We find out things like how to give yourself a competitive advantage, the importance of marketing, the way emerging technology is changing the game for voice talent, determining what to charge, and what first steps a newbie should take.

If you’d like to submit your own questions for a future installment of Ask Jim, email the VO School Podcast at voschoolpodcast@gmail.com!
